How do I install FLEXlm 11.9 on Windows using the install wizard?
Note: The installation Wizard may give error if you have a previous version of MSC Licensing FLEXlm installed, uninstall previous version using Add/Remove programs than try launching the installation Wizard again. Make sure to have a backup copy of your License.dat file elsewhere if you are just upgrading FLEXlm version before removing. If you are having problems uninstalling the previous version of FLEXlm, please see article: KB8020434
Download the Windows FLEXlm installer from the Solutions Download Center (SDC) under the "MSC Licensing FLEXlm" section.
The name of the Windows installer is: msc_licensing_11.9_windows3264.exe
Double-click (For Windows Vista and Windows 7, Right-click and select "Run as Administrator) on the downloaded file to start the installation.
Select New Installation and click Next
Use the default installation directory and click Next
When prompted for a license file, Browse the license that was issued to you for your machine. This file could have been saved anywhere on your system.
This FLEXlm installation will make a copy of the file and place it in the FLEXlm installation directory: C:\MSC.Software\MSC.Licensing\11.9
Enter port you want to use, or keep the default to 27500.
The installer will make a modification of the license file to point to the proper MSC Vendor DAEMON:
SERVER this_host 00221923261f 27500
DAEMON MSC /your_path/msc
SERVER IND-SUNILGAI 00221923261f 27500
DAEMON MSC C:\MSC.Software\MSC.Licensing\11.9\msc.exe
License file location will be: C:\MSC.Software\MSC.Licensing\11.9\license.dat
At this point, you should have a new license server started in your Control Panel/Services:
To verify that the license servers is up and running please check the lmgrd.log file (C:\MSC.Software\MSC.Licensing\11.9\lmgrd.log)
To point your MSC products on client machine to the license server:

Right Click on My Computer ->Properties->Advanced system settings->Environment variable->System Variables->New
